Kids who ride quad bikes on public land

122 comments  Add a comment

This gripe is about kids on quad bikes.  After years of saving and thousands of pounds of borrowing I have bought my first house.  I work hard, pay my taxes and abide by the laws of the land.

This is why I get so annoyed when there are so many criminals getting away with absolutely anything.  Near where I live, there is a council estate, now don’t get me wrong because I am not having a go at all people who live in council houses.  Unfortunately however, there are a select few that feel the need to ride their stupid and probably stolen, quad bikes on public land.  I wouldn’t mind if it was land that was for set aside for such pursuits, but it is not in this case.

They ride these quad bikes on footpaths, over private drives, people’s lawns and pretty much wherever they like.  The police have been called on so many occasions by a number of people, but nothing is ever actually done to stop this crazy behaviour!  These kids aren't insured they don't care if they damage other people’s property!  The way things are going I suspect it won’t be long until someone is seriously hurt or even worse, killed by one of these things.

Kids on a quad bike menace England is growing to be a country with a bit of a thug culture because we are too soft on criminals.  They don’t care that they are breaking the law.  They don’t fear jail, because it’s nice and cosy for them when they get in, and then of course when they get out it’s nice and cosy with their benefits that we pay for.  I think we should have more of a say in what the tax is spent on, I certainly wouldn’t want it spent on criminals.

I personally think we should bring back National service to get these kids off the street and get them doing something useful.

Stalags dustbin, what's wrong with a trampoline? I live in a mixed area and the ones who have trampolines in the garden are the better off who don't bother anybody and obey the law. The ones who cause a nuisance are the ones who live in the council houses and they have very little in their gardens.

I used to live in a beautiful area that was completely ruined by kids on those motor bikes. The police could never catch them and it became a game for them. They caused untold damage to property and cars.

Definately a Chav, (slim shady) beer bellied, tattooed, foul mouthed, slob, mobile phone in one hand, a packet off crisps and fag in the other and I bet the husband-partner is even worse.

Typical person that buys one of their many offspring a quad bike to annoy everyone.

Bet they have a trampoline in the garden as well.

Oh the fun they bring into my life

You have the same mentality of our cousins in the U.S.A who "teach" their six year olds to use guns, bloody STUPID

Quad bikes are dangerous! and should not be used by minors unless very very closely supervised.

Do we teach minors to drive cars?

There is a difference between a motorised vehicle and a non-motorised vehicle, one is safe one is not.

Read the aforementioned reports on the safety of quad bikes and come to the sensible conclusion, they are not worth the risk, unless you are an adult and can make an informed asessment of risk versus pleasure.

Unless you are a CHAV of course then I may as well talk to the dustbin

"And whoever you are Stalag14. ...........probably you was moddy coddled as a baby and could never be trusted. Never mind one day you may grow up and be let loose in society lol."

You must be new to this site or you would be aware from my past posts that I am ex armed forces and retired skydiver-base jumper so no more of your inane crap please.

I know all about risk and subjecting a child to the risk of using a quad bike is STUPID

Yes i agree quads can be dangerouse if used incorectly. So why sell them in all sizes if their is no where to use them? Shall we just not purchase anything for our children anymore that could harm them ? Absolute crap. I would never let my children go on anything that i felt was unsafe or they could not control. I personally rode on the back of this quad for hours with my son until he was confident he understood it was not a toy and it could harm him if used incorectly. So please save me the speach on it being a toy. And if thats the case are you telling me its mature then for adults with no licences to be driving mates cars on a beach at high speed and throwing them all around the place. and for horse chariots to be racing up and down the beach ? OMG how dare they !!!! Could that not be misconstrude as dangerouse ???? noooo because they are adults lol Whatever save me the speach and grow up. And whoever you are Stalag14. Sorry but you were obviously brought up wrapped in a blanket. Its obvious you could never afford a quad or your parents never let you have the big boys toys as they were called. probably you was moddy coddled as a baby and could never be trusted. Never mind one day you may grow up and be let loose in society lol.

Anyone that considers a quad bike a toy must be insane, likewise mini motorbikes, the scourge of council estates throughout the country.

Crush 'em all is what I say, too dangerous, too noisy. and too often used on public roads (illegal)

I am going to make as much noise as I can and f**k the rest of you, is the attitude of many quad bike, mini motorbike users, a CHAV badge of honour I think.

Ahhh, life on the council estates. peace and harmony everywhere you look. God only knows what the UK is going to be like in a few years from now. I once saw a Startrek episode where the planet was so crowded that everybody stood shoulder to shoulder, there was no violence because nobody could raise their arms, only shout at one another!
